Fire and rescue spokeswoman Katie Brady said all occupants of the home and several pets were already outside when emergency crews arrived, but firefighters later found multiple cats inside the home that had perished in the fire.

During the four-hour call, Stafford firefighting crews were assisted by Fauquier County Fire and Rescue, the Fredericksburg Fire Department, Stafford County Animal Control and the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office. Units from Quantico Fire and Emergency Services and Prince William Fire and Rescue also assisted.

Brady said no firefighters were injured during the incident, which remains under investigation.
